I am not a fan of Daylight Saving Time, but I learned more about it from this site than I thought there was to learn. I guess the real question is how does the time change affect your gardening? If you are a morning person and prefer to garden early in the day, before it heats up, then I guess DST makes you get up even earlier. But if you like to garden at the end of the day, then DST gives you more daylight when you need it most.
I used to say I was a morning person, and I still do my best work–gardening, writing, whatever–in the morning, but I have come to realize I have a secondary productive period in the evening. It’s the afternoon that’s my worst time, and DST doesn’t help with that. A siesta just might, however. When all’s said and done, what I really wish is that heat wasn’t a factor in my gardening plans. Give me a climate that never gets above 85 degrees F (30C), or wave a magic wand and make me tough enough to take it. When’s your favorite time to garden?
